08/25/2017 Eyehategod, Cro-Mags, Escuela (Rochester, NY @ Montage Music Hall)

Monday, August 28th, 2017

I’d heard about both of these bands for years and years. Cro-Mags are one of the most influential hardcore bands ever, and in terms of sludgy metal, no one seems to be more revered than Eyehategod. Between Phil Anselmo wearing their shirt in the I’m Broken video, and Randy Blythe always repping them, they’ve always […]

08/16/2017 Guns N Roses, Live (Buffalo, NY @ New Era Field)

Thursday, August 17th, 2017

Not In This Lifetime indeed. Much like most of the known universe, I got hooked on GNR by seeing the Paradise City video in constant rotation on MTV when I was 8 years old. Being a bit too young to see them in their heyday, plus all of the ensuing drama, I didn’t think I’d […]

07/21/2017 Primus, Clutch (Rochester, NY @ Dome Arena)

Saturday, July 22nd, 2017

Clutch in my backyard at the Dome? Yes! I got tickets to this as soon as they went on sale. And then I ended up having throat surgery scheduled for the day before… meaning I would be on voice rest. Complete voice rest. Everyone was asking, “Are you still going to go?” Uh, I didn’t […]

07/13/2017 Warped Tour – GWAR, Hatebreed, Sick Of It All, The Acacia Strain, blessthefall, Candiria, Beartooth, Emmure, CKY, Watsky, Hawthorne Heights, Alestorm, Anti-Flag, Save Ferris, Separations, After The Burial, Feeki, Silent Planet (Darien, NY @ Darien Lake Performing Arts Center)

Friday, July 14th, 2017

Every year I check the Warped Tour lineups, and every year it’s two bands I want to see and a bunch I either don’t or have never heard of. This year there was a whole bunch of stuff that looked interesting – Hatebreed, GWAR, Candiria, Sick of it All, Save Ferris, among others. Plus Jamey […]

07/08/2017 Fuel, Unwill (Rochester, NY @ The German House)

Sunday, July 9th, 2017

[American Acid was first band on, didn’t see them.] This show was early. Like, Fuel came out on stage around 8:30 on Saturday night early. I was dumbfounded, and thankfully I didn’t do my usual “put the kids to bed first” routine, or I would have missed most of it! I wonder if the lack […]

06/29/2017 Our Lady Peace, Collective Soul, Tonic (Buffalo, NY @ Albright Knox Art Gallery)

Friday, June 30th, 2017

This was essentially my 20th anniversary concert – give or take 2 weeks, but seeing the same band in the same city where it all started was pretty special. My first ever show was Our Lady Peace at the Tralf in June of 1997, and the only thing that would have made this show even […]

05/30/2017 Tool, Once And Future Band (Rochester, NY @ Blue Cross Arena)

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Imagine everyone’s surprise when Tool announced a short tour in the Spring of 2017, and Rochester got a date! Naturally I jumped on a ticket to this show as soon as it was announced, and so did everyone else – it allegedly sold out in something like 20 minutes. It had only been 15 years […]

02/28/2017 Big Wreck (Rochester, NY @ Anthology)

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

I have to admit I was baffled that Big Wreck was coming to Rochester. They were also playing Buffalo a couple days later on the tour, so why Rochester too? Not that I was complaining, far less of a drive for me! I also had not yet been to Anthology since it had been remodeled […]

02/26/2017 Mike Doughty (Rochester, NY @ Flour City Station)

Monday, February 27th, 2017

Also known as “Eric and Matt’s Biennial Man-Date Night”. Seriously, early 2012, late 2014, early 2017. The 2008 show kinda messes it up, but you get the idea. Doughty comes around Rochester roughly every other year, and Matt and I always go! This show was supposed to have Wheatus (they of Teenage Dirtbag fame) as […]

02/23/2017 The Tea Party (Buffalo, NY @ Town Ballroom)

Friday, February 24th, 2017

Ah The Tea Party. But not just any Tea Party show this time! The first of a two-night stand at the Ballroom (I couldn’t do both nights, and I heard the 2nd show was just as good as this one), on the Twenty Years of Transmission tour. So instead of us complaining about the same […]
